ESA RENEWABLES LLC BY ALAN DORICH ESA Renewables engineered and built a 200-kilowatt power plant for a $1.5 million project – the largest ground-mounted solar farm in Georgia. IT IS GROWING FAST, BUT ESA RENEWABLES SAYS IT AIMS NOT TO BE THE BIGGEST. INSTEAD, IT STRIVES TO BE THE VERY BEST SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC COMPANY. FRESH ALTERNATIVE I COMPANY PROFILE ESA Renewables LLC www.esarenewables.com Projected 2010 sales: $12 million Headquarters: Lake Mary, Fla. Employees: Six Specialty: Turnkey photovoltaic Jeffrey Burkett, president: “We have to start [taking] steps to make the world a better place for our children.” 102 | EXPLORATION-PROCESSING.COM services ts technology may not be new, but the time is right for an alternative energy company like ESA Renewables LLC, President Jeffrey Burkett says. “We have to start [taking] steps to make the world a better place for our children and our children’s children,” he says. Based in Lake Mary, Fla., ESA Renewables provides turnkey services for solar projects, including design, engineering, construction, maintenance and financing. Burkett formed the company earlier this year with ESA Renewables’ parent company, Energia Solar Aplicada, an alternative energy company in Spain that has 20 years of industry experience. “Towards [the end of] last year, Energia Solar Aplicada decided to look at expanding its operations in the United States,” Burkett says. ESA Renewables was formed in January 2010, and today, it has a staff of up to six and serves a broad customer base that includes private companies and public bodies. In addition, the Bank of Valencia and Bancaja own ESA Renewables, which gives it advantages in project financing, Contract Administrator Lindsay Herold says. Financing is key to making these projects work, and ESA Renewables has a unique aspect to its business that sets it apart from any other solar contractor. If the end user cannot obtain funding for the project, the company has the ability to step in and finance these projects. FALL 2010 http://www.EXPLORATION-PROCESSING.COM
